Cheri Bustos

Incumbent

Rep. Bustos (IL-17) has been a tireless champion of the people of Central Illinois. Through “Supermarket Saturdays,” when she walks the grocery stores in her district talking to her constituents, and “Cheri on Shift” job shadowing stops, Bustos has remained committed to listening to the voices of the people she represents. Bustos is currently chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, working to ensure that we protect and expand our majority in the House.

In office, Bustos helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.
